I really like this one a lot. Apparently this has to do with a Japanese folk story about wisteria turning into butterflies, or hatching butterflies, or something like that. I'm not sure what those hourglass-looking things are supposed to be, though. (Anybody got any ideas?)

Nymph of Wisteria

And I think I linked to the pictures the other day, but I'm linking again, because there are more of them now, and besides, I put a lot of work into taking them, and attempting to match them up with the right names, and all that. I'm not nearly done yet, either.

The cold front finally came through about noon today. It didn't really get cold at all, although you could tell the difference - but I think it will be pretty cool in the morning, by south Texas standards, at least!

I have been working on a Spreadsheet From Hell at work - 60,000 lines or so that have to have things done to them manually. The end of that is finally in sight, though - I've been working on it sporadically for about the last 10 days. Now I just have to find my boss a nonstop flight to Pensacola that doesn't cost $900, which may be a harder job than the spreadsheet.

I have no idea what those hourglass things are either, but that's a gorgeous quilt.

I think they are spools or bobbins of some kind, actually.

They are vaguely butterfly-shaped, I noticed, whatever they are - maybe it's supposed to be, wisteria turns into butterflies, which turns into spools of thread... which eventually turns into a quilt? I dunno.

It's a percussive instrument called a tsuzumi. kohtsuzumi is the larger one, otsuzumi is smaller.

You play it like this.
